Travellers' Choice
This tranquil country retreat stands in beautiful grounds at the southern tip of Lake Windermere, surrounded by spectacular woodland. The unwinding begins the moment you arrive. Following a warm welcome, you'll be shown to one of eight beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with its own luxurious en suite bathroom. We've thought of everything, from little treats like complementary toiletries to more practical concerns like hair dryers, Satellite TV, DVD and iPod dock, internet access and your own hospitality tray. We also offer complimentary use of the local four star hotel's health and fitness spa.After that, it's up to you. Our pleasant gardens suggest drinks on the lawn or a lovely outdoor eating experience. Open log fires and a cosy drawing room invite you to curl up and relax. If it weren't for our superb location, you'd never want to go out - but the Lake District beckons, and it's all just waiting to be explored. Need a last minute gift? We can provide vouchers for future stays at the Knoll. Call to book now!!

Just back from a 3 night stay at the Knoll. What can we say...... absolutely fabulous!!! From the minute we arrived we felt welcomed, safe (covid safe) and valued. The Hotel is beautiful, clean and welcoming. Fabulous food.... Breakfast included and kept us going all day. The evening meals are really worth trying. Great food at attractive prices. The ladies here that run The Knoll are just wonderful and we really cannot wait to go back again. Superb location and a fabulous break away from home.

Thank you very much for making us feel so welcome and safe during these difficult times. A fantastic breakfast all fresh and locally produce food. A warm and restful room -peaceful and quiet with a lovely welcoming piece of Kendal mint cake and a bathrobe too! Friendly and approachable team that even advised us about some pleasant local walks. We cannot wait to return, when life returns to normal. Mille grazie

We are just back from the knoll after a much needed break having not had a holiday this year. Chose the knoll after cancelling it earlier in the year due to Covid. This is a lovely little place off the beaten track, the communal areas are charming with a shabby chic decor which adds to the ambiance and you can see what the owner is trying to achieve with the decor and its country cottage feel, however we felt the bedroom was a bit dated and didn’t exude the same charm as the communal areas. We was a bit disappointed as we expected the same shabby chic decor and ornaments in the room, it felt a bit dark, dingy and old. Having said this the bed was comfortable and it was clean and it was sufficient for our needs. The food at the knoll is absolutely delicious, the breakfasts are varied and between us we tried several things on the breakfast menu and all where equally delicious and plentiful. We ate on two evenings at the knoll and again we were not disappointed, the platters where fabulous as where the cheese boards. I would highly recommend eating at the knoll in the evenings, nice atmosphere with good music playing in the background, good wine and no complaints from us. Despite our little moan about the room we would go back and we would have no hesitation in recommending the knoll.
